Sport Court Goes Mobile with SmashZone Tour

June 10, 2011

White Plains, NY — The United States Tennis Association is on the road with its 15-city US Open mobile tour and Sport Court® is providing the playing surfaces that introduce kids and adults to tennis.

The tour includes the San Diego County Fair in San Diego, CA on June 10, 11 and 12. From June 17 through 19 the playing surface will introduce kids to tennis at the San Mateo County Fair, San Mateo, California.

It features Sport Court’s specially-designed PowerGame™, the ideal surface for tennis.

“Sport Court’s PowerGame is the safest court in the world,” said Ron Cerny, President and CEO of Connor Sport Court International. The Utah-based manufacturer has subjected its tennis surfaces to rigid third-party tests to come up with the optimum surface for safety and playability.

“We are delighted to again partner with the USTA as part of their ongoing program to encourage young people across the country to get active and start playing tennis,” Cerny added

“Taking one of the premiere attractions of the US Open on the road to showcase our 10 and Under Tennis initiative allows us to reach audiences that might not have ever experienced tennis before,” said Jon Vegosen, USTA Chairman of the Board and President. “To be able to get more racquets in kid’s hands at a young age, and to share with them the idea that tennis can be played anywhere from schools yards, to parks, to clubs, and even at home, underscores the fact that tennis is the sport of opportunity.”

The tour kicked off at the Atlanta Jazz Festival and was part of the People’s Fair in Denver before proceeding to California.
